Title: President & Co-CEO, C-SPAN
Years in Cable: 36
Education: MBA, U. of Chicago
Susan Swain
Title: President & Co-CEO, C-SPAN
Years in Cable: 34
Education: BA, University of Scranton (PA)
One Word that Best Describes Me: Curious
What a year to cover an election. Co-CEOs Kennedy and Swain have
been leading the network through coverage of the presidential election
cycle with content across platforms and social media-a project that
the net's recent revamp of its website and authenticating streams have
made easier and more consumer friendly. It's the 10th season they've
covered, and if it was a reality series, it would be called " C-SPAN, "
Kennedy jokes. There's certainly some truth to that. Meanwhile, the pair
adds a little something extra to the networks' coverage. For instance,
Swain moderated the net's series " First Ladies " and this past year
hosted its " Landmark Cases " Supreme Court series, and Kennedy has
been influential with musical choices.
Rob Kennedy
The biggest innovation in cable over the last year: Continued innovations
in program guides including voice navigation

included carriage on AT&T/DirecTV
- all seven are on AT&T's U-verse
platform - and ESN's comedy network,
Comedy.TV, and court network,
JusticeCentral.TV, are both now
carried in 20 million DirecTV homes
as well. ESN settled its lawsuit with
AT&T after it scored the carriage. It
has filed a similar lawsuit against
Charter for allegedly not launching
African-American networks.
Meanwhile, Allen is launching a sixth
court series, " The Verdict With Judge
